Stopped here on Easter Sunday - so it was busy - the restaurant was fully booked but managed to get a table for pub food. I had the swan cottage pie - £12 might seem a lot but this was great quality - pieces of steak not mince and really tasty! If locally sourced and seasonal food is important to you then that's what you get here! Also serve local ales. Lovely setting by the river with attached hotel and spa. Children's menu is £4 - £6. Staff were friendly and quaintly dressed - a kind of laura ashley look for the women - so a bit different to the usual 'uniform'

My sister had her wedding reception here last week and it was just lovely. The rooms are gorgeous, the staff are very friendly and the wedding room looked fantastic. Highly recommended.

Called in for a Saturday evening bar meal after a recommendation from family. Busy on arrival but soon managed to get a seat. Opted for the seafood board and farmer's board. More bread supplied on request. Plenty of selection on the platter with great tastes. Been here before late season and lovely to sit out by the water's edge. Will return one day on a rainy day plan to make use of the spa which looks great. Relaxed atmosphere, you feel free to wander without staff bothering you. Can come smart or casual.

My daughter decided to take me out for lunch one Sunday. I didn't fancy Sunday lunch though. We decided on this hotel and it was jammed packed with customers. The staff were really friendly and the place was lovely and clean. The food was gorgeous. Served beautifully. Will definitly be going there again.

Had been staying on the other side of the river from The Swan with my wife, and called in for a quick beer after a long walk. Beautiful location on the edge of Windermere and in summer I bet its fantastic to sit outside - bit cold when we were there! Looked at the menu for the pub grub and the formal restaurant and decided to book the restaurant for our last night. Food was excellent and very well presented. Whilst we don't normally have one, there was so much selection on the dessert menu that we both had a pudding which were fantastic. However service was average with the waitresses more preoccupied in setting up for the next day than serving the incumbent diners. Prices were reasonable.
